Female influence:
Vira Marchenko

Layla Sailor

My biggest inspiration whilst looking at Fashion & Freedom has been my mum. She has never been a stereotypical woman. She is the DIY person in our house and has a great career in landscape architecture. She is a strong independent and very knowledgeable woman.

When I look back on photos of my mum in her 20’s and 40’s her fashion was very minimal and beautiful. In the photo I am cradling a hat that she used to wear, which I love. Now my mum’s style is wild and confident like her personality. I inspire to be a strong woman like my mum.

Like my mum, women of WWI broke out of traditional female roles, and grew into a generation of women who had voices.
